ADM Hosts Process Safety Faculty Workshop Demonstrating their commitment to safety and ethical practice, Archer Daniels Midland Company hosted their 2nd annual - three-day workshop to train university faculty in process safety. Getting students more focused on hazard identification and risk reduction will benefit them regardless of whether they go to industry. -Ken Tague, ADM Faculty members learned about ADM’s operations as the world’s largest agricultural processors and food ingredient providers, process safety risks and the importance of creating a safety culture early on as part of undergraduates’ chemical engineering curriculum. At ADM’s faculty workshop on July 24-27, 2017, 17 faculty from 14 universities got a front row seat to the process-safety challenges colleagues’ face, and the approaches they take to stay safe. The sessions feature breakout groups, and real-life examples and tools faculty can use to incorporate process safety into their existing chemical engineering curriculum. This year at ADM, the central focus was on Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) applied to risk reduction across all orders of scale from the laboratory to pilot operations to full scale operations. Activities included a foam test at the ethanol tank farm, plant tours and vendor demonstrations. Participants also learned about ADM’s operations, process-safety risks and safety culture. Ken Tague, ADM Process Safety Manager said “Getting students more focused on hazard identification, risk reduction and determining whether the risk is tolerable will benefit them regardless of whether they go to industry or remain in research. Having students understanding these concepts benefits all industry and technology settings, not just ADM, and will ultimately save lives." See photos from the event. Doing a World of Good Through Safety and Ethical Practice AIChE’s Doing a World of Good campaign is a 5-year, $15 million effort that brings together industry, academia and AIChE’s 53,000 members to collectively advance chemical engineering and bring that expertise to bear in addressing societal needs. The Undergraduate Process Safety Learning Initiative is a major global effort and core campaign priority to accelerate process safety education and better prepare graduates for the workforce.
